Receiver Transmitter Advice for Newbie

Post by dabineri » Thu Mar 29, 2018 1:49 am

I have questions about the FrSky Taranis X9D Plus:

1. Does this support at least 4 PWM channels for a quad?

2. What are some good receivers that could be used with this radio and have telemetry?

Many thanks for any advice. Dave

1. The transmitter can handle up to 16 channels (or more).
2. FrSky makes a wide variety of receivers, including the XSR, X4R, X6R, and X8R, all of which provide telemetry.
The motors on a quad are not controlled directly via PWM from the receiver, but by a flight controller. Normally, six or more channels are fed into the FC, which in turn controls the motors and stabilizes the aircraft.
